The Power of Technology for Small Businesses

We live in a remarkable time, where many of the tasks that would have taken an excessive amount of time to complete in the past can now be done much more efficiently, quickly, and cleanly. Communicating with friends and loved ones is possible from anywhere and everywhere, and information on just about any topic is available at your fingertips. We use technology in just about every facet of our personal lives, but forget that we can use technology to make our business lives easier, too.


An important aspect of technology for any small business is their cyber security posture. Many businesses (of all sizes, actually) tend to not invest enough money in their cyber security, leading to huge costs in all sorts of ways. Be it funds lost to cyber fraud, the reputation damage that comes with a data breach, or the time lost when you have to change all of your passwords on all of your accounts because a phishing attack was just believable enough, it's impossible to deny that security is becoming more and more important with each passing day. When viewed as a measure taken to prevent a security incident rather than a reaction to an event that has already occurred, the case for investing in your security posture only becomes stronger.


Another way that technology can improve the way you do business is through enhanced communication. Almost everyone uses email, but software such as Microsoft Teams and collaborative features in software you already use like Word and Excel can make it possible for your whole team to work together in a way that they have not been able to before.
